Professionals

What can we do to help your work?

As more and more families are impacted by a child who uses harmful or aggressive behaviour in the home (often referred to as child to parent violence or abuse CAPVA) professionals are seeking information and skills to offer support and advice to those impacted.

Whether you see this daily in your work or are aware of some families on the edge of your services, these behaviours can put a significant strain on the relationships between family members. Knowing what to say and how to respond to families can bring significant changes and help families engage with services.

At Capa, we believe that every child deserves a safe and nurturing environment to grow and thrive.

Sign up to our mailing list for professionals below and we’ll let you know when our next training sessions are. If you work with children and families and want to learn more about how you can support families dealing with challenging behaviours, book your place on our next session.

Bespoke training

How we interact and work together as a team reflects in our outcomes. If we have strong communication, trusting relationships and clear boundaries and expectations the outcomes we are working toward will be positive.

Capa training helps professionals build strong communication, trusting relationships and clear boundaries and expectations within families who are impacted by a child who uses harmful and/or aggressive behaviour towards a parent. Helping to reduce and stop this behaviour and allowing families to rebuild strong positive relationships.

Jane would be delighted to work with you and your organisation to create a bespoke training session/s to ensure that your organisational needs are met. Capa First Response can provide both online training via Zoom or Teams, or come to you to for face to face training. Get in touch with Jane to arrange a time to discuss your requirements. 

Testimonials from professionals

I really appreciated the event, it was reaffirming for the work we are doing, and highlighted some helpful learning points for our practice too. It also reinforced the need for CAPVA training in outside agencies/ schools/ local authorities and i hope we can continue to spread the word

I am just about to start working with a family where the 3 boys are displaying these behaviours, the youngest is only 4 and is at risk of being excluded from nursery. My initial reaction to the referral was to blame the parenting of these boys, so thank you for enabling me to get off on the right footing with this parent and I will certainly be talking about your strategies and service with this family when I meet them next week.

The training was really informative. It provided a good balance between the sharing of practical strategies and ideas and exploration of possible causes. Jane’s delivery of the training was really engaging and the training was delivered at a good pace. I like that Jane provided real life examples of cases.
